Malfunction: Problems setting up printers via gwdg-print3

Message-Id: 202110071825
Time:
since September 2021
Affected: Users of gwdg-print3.gwdg.de
Impact: Printers from gwdg-print3 can only be set up with administrator rights in certain cases.

Due to the urgency of the so-called ‘PrintNightmare’ security vulnerability on
Windows systems we had to implement a workaround.
As a side effect of this workaround you can connect printers from the servers
mentioned above only as an administrator, if the appropriate printer driver
is not yet installed on your PC.
We are waiting for a solution from Microsoft.
